Sherry can be both dry and sweet. Grapes are dried in the sun, then fortified - the addition of wine distillate. There is also ripening in the solera system. The barrels are stacked on top of each other. The barrels with the most sherry sherry, the barrel with the youngest sherry in the uppermost layer. Content in the lower barrels is bottled. The content of the upper layer is overloaded in the exact ratio. Certain wines of the sherry type are not mixed.

This wine is very dense with the aroma of camphor, liquorice, chocolate, nutmeg and spices, pastries, hazelnuts and tobacco. The mouth is wide, sweet and velvety, it can feel the taste of red fruits, nuts and roasted almonds and a wooden base. An incredible spectrum of rich, sweet, balanced and delicate flavor will attack your senses and after some time you will recognize the aroma of black olives that adds a unique flavor to this wine.
